It's time again to take on Zenkaikon's Battle Frontier, this time using the new Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon games for the 3DS and 2DS. Throughout the weekend, there will be Frontier Brains with special Frontier Brain pins at the convention. As long as they are available, you can challenge them to a Pokémon Battle to win their Frontier Symbol. Each Frontier Brain has special rules that you will have to follow for the challenge. It may be hard to find the Brains at times, however there will be special meet-ups on Friday and Saturday in the Tabletop room, where the Brains will freely be taking challenges on a first-come, first-served basis. On Sunday there will be a Tournament, also in the Tabletop room, where the Frontier Symbols you won on the previous days will give you special bonuses during each of your battles.

These are the base rules for the event, some of these may be changed by the Frontier Brain according to their specific rules and each are on a case by case basis. Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Modified OU Singles- Standard 6v6 match If your 3DS or 2DS battery dies mid-battle it is considered as a forfeit.(we will have chargers available for you to use)
